New information surrounding Derrick Rose’s disappearance on Monday night continues to emerge, with the latest report suggesting the point guard had a family situation and may have returned to Chicago.

Rose was an unexpected no-show for New York’s 110-96 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans at MSG on Monday night. Prior to the game, head coach Jeff Hornacek made no specific mention of Rose’s unavailability. The point guard’s absence came as a surprise to many within the organization, including his teammates.

After the game, Hornacek offered no additional details on the matter and declined to comment about the situation until hearing more from Rose.

Rose’s long-time teammate and friend, Joakim Noah, said he had spoken to the point guard and that the veteran was “okay,” but wouldn’t elaborate further.

Meanwhile, the New York Daily News' Frank Isola reports that Rose is believed to have returned to his hometown of Chicago. A separate report from ESPN's Ramona Shelburne indicates Rose left without permission for a family situation, but has since been in contact with the team.

Rose is in his first season with the Knicks. He reportedly had a “major blowout” with Hornacek after Saturday’s game.
